Local election filing deadline passes — here’s who filed

The filing deadline to run for local office this spring passed at 5 p.m. Friday, giving residents a good idea of what their May ballots will look like.

The candidate lists are not official, as each year, there are often multiple withdrawals in local races throughout southern Denton County. If any town, city or school district ends up with no contested races, the entity will cancel the election.

The Cross Timbers Gazette will bring more information about the candidates and their platforms as Election Day approaches. Early voting will begin April 25, and Election Day will be on May 7.

Listed below are the local seats that will be on the ballot, along with the names of the candidates who filed for them, according to the entities’ websites. This story will be updated to reflect any last-minute additions or withdrawals. This list does not include bond elections and other propositions.
